Jeff Ruby (the owner) blamed ice in the river for tearing apart the ties to the restaurant.......sounds reasonable. That said, Ruby comes off a mafia wannabe and his brain has been fired by years of drug and alcohol abuse. I live in the area, and this guy is about as trustworthy as John Gotti....
plus he shot Oswald
I believe it was during a summer storm in 1969 that the Becky Thatcher restaurant boat broke loose from the St Louis riverfront and beached on the Illinois side. The Santa Maria replica broke loose and wound up at the bottom of the Mississippi River someplace (and couldn't be found).
Food and a Cruise for same low price,meal with a changing view,sounds great.
Global warming caused the whole thing.
Makes one wonder why the restaurant why the thing is still being touted as a restaurant since it has been closed for three years.
Whether open or closed a business is still a business. A closed lawyer's office is still a lawyer's office. You wouldn't say, "That's a closed beanery."
im sure the ride was fun, dont get ya panties all bunched up now !
Who's at fault? Either the tie-ups dockside broke or the tie-ups on the float didn't did not hold. This being the second time it happened..., I hope there is insurance.
It not the first time, it happened before with patrons on board. They need to get the moorings updated!
The place hasn't been open since 2011,,,,,,,,,,so worrying about customers being onboard is a moot point......
food on the go
Slow food restaurant to boot
